radians()#

Converts a degree measurement to its corresponding value in radians.

Examples#

def setup():
    deg = 45
    rad = py5.radians(deg)
    # prints "45 degrees is 0.7854 radians"
    py5.println(round(deg, 5), 'degrees is', round(rad, 5), 'radians')

Description#

Converts a degree measurement to its corresponding value in radians. Radians and degrees are two ways of measuring the same thing. There are 360 degrees in a circle and 2*PI radians in a circle. For example, 90° = PI/2 = 1.5707964. All trigonometric functions in py5 require their parameters to be specified in radians.

This function makes a call to the numpy radians() function.

Signatures#

radians(
    degrees: Union[float, npt.ArrayLike]  # degree value to convert to radians
) -> Union[float, npt.NDArray]
